Melantroop (Belgium) by Vibe Stalpaert
In "Melantroop," we follow the restless Marta in the metropolis of Brussels. This young researcher struggles with insomnia and accompanying hallucinations. After a visit to her doctor, the symptoms turn out to be deeper rooted than thought. Close to the protagonist, we end up from one place to another in a raging city. The viewer becomes an eyewitness to the fragile world in which Marta tries to hold her own. When Marta disappears into a mysterious hole, the viewer enters a new - or rather a primal - world where everything is possible and the arrival of man is still unknown.
